Problem with Send to FTP server
« on: September 13, 2004, 08:33:31 pm »

I am having a problem using the Send To FTP Server functionality.

When trying to send any media to my ISP FTP server I cannot get the path to work.  I created a directory on the FTP server called test.  I have tried every variation of defining the path (\test, /test, test) and it keeps putting the files in the top level directory.

Also, on an IIS FTP server on my LAN, I cannot get it to transfer the files at all.  I get a progress indicator that the files are transferring, but when it is all done I get a 0 of x files transferred.  I am able to connect to this server and write files just fine using other ftp programs.

Does anyone have a clue what could be wrong?

Thanks,
Shadowen

Try a search here.  I wrote some instructions on this a while back.

It won't create two new directories, but it will create one.

I searched the Media Center and Media Jukebox forums and could find no other posts with a solution to this topic.

Thank you VERY much!  That did the trick.


I had to specify the address as ftp.server.com/directory and the path as / to get it to write into the /directory folder.


I'm still having trouble with my local FTP server (under IIS), have you had luck publishing to an IIS server?

I tried this a few days ago with 11.80 (I think).  The directory wasn't created - it copied everything, including index.html, to the root directory.  I'll reread your instructions and try again asap, but I think I did exactly what they say.  Either way, overwriting files like this can't be good  :(

It would be nice If upload was part of the MC11 SDK.

I could use that right about now.

Here's an example that will work:

EXAMPLE 1
Address:  ftp.jriver.com/~jriver/public_html/2004
Path:  /newdir

In the example above, my home directory is specified by this part:

Address:  ftp.jriver.com/~jriver

So if I wanted to put files in a temp directory under that, I'd have:

EXAMPLE 2
Address:  ftp.jriver.com/~jriver
Path: /temp  [will work]

If temp didn't exist, MC would offer to create it.  However, MC won't create two new directories (or more), so this would NOT work if temp didn't exist:

Path: /temp/second_dir  [won't work if temp doesn't exist]

I suggest starting with the address set to your home directory as in example 2 above.  Add a single directory in the path setting.  Check to see that it works.  Then go on from there.

It looks like ftp.jriver.com/ works, but ftp.jriver.com doesn't.
